Super Bowl Preview and Prediction

You knew it was coming. My views and predictions on
Super Bowl XXXVIII

The Place: Reliant Stadium, Houston, Texas
The Matchup:
For the AFC:
New England Patriots.
How they got here:
Immovable object stops the irresistable force, as the Patriots stopped MVP quarterback Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts.
Defense, Defense, Defense. Plus, playoff experience, having won the Super Bowl two years ago. They know exactly what they are in for.
Not the greatest offense on the planet.
For the NFC:
The Carolina Panthers
How they got here:
Shutting down the Philadelphia Eagles on the road.
Defense and a good running game led by Steven Davis. Good special teams.
Besides Davis, the offense is lackluster. Delhomme is not yet proven to win games, but hasn’t lost them either.
